Administrators Masters Program (AMP®)


The Administrators Masters Program (AMP®) focuses on the enhancement of the skills required for employee benefit plan administration—leadership and management, communications and customer service, project management and strategic dialogue.

Candidates for AMP must attend two (2) full days of classroom instruction, then attend three (3) designated sessions offered during the U.S. Annual Employee Benefits Conference.

As a graduate of AMP, you will receive a certificate of completion for your course work and a commemorative pin. Graduates are welcome to attend any of the AMP graduate sessions redesigned each year and offered at the Annual Conference.

Core Program—

Enjoy a rapid learning experience that immediately improves your administrative skills and knowledge. Participants who complete the two-day preconference core program will receive a certificate of completion and a special AMP ribbon.

Key Takeaways

  • Develop leadership and management skills essential to the efficient and effective administration of the plans you serve.
  • Apply learned knowledge and skills with your peers through participation in exercises, case studies and group activities.
  • Dialogue on the industry’s current issues, trends and best practices.

Candidate Classes—

Participants who have completed the two-day core program on Saturday and Sunday must attend three designated classes scheduled on Monday and Tuesday of the Annual Conference or the Administrators Institute in 2015 to complete the program and earn an AMP pin. Participants who attend candidate classes and earn their pins are considered graduates of the AMP.
